Treatments for excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
Botulinum Toxin type A (often referred to as Botox TM) is a liquefied protein that is injected in tiny amounts to relax the sweat glands. The relaxation of the sweat glands helps reduce or prevent excessive sweating.
There are 3 Botulinum type A licensed in the UK but only Botox TM has a license to treat excessive sweating. Botox TM is a prescription only medicine and for cosmetic purposes can only be administer after a face-to-face consultation has taken place by a registered prescriber.
